Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0981266A2] In a microwave oven, initial surge current protection is provided by the winding of a motor (12) rather than the more conventional current-limiting resistor. Consequently, energy, that would otherwise be wasted producing unwanted heat, is used for useful work. <IMAGE>
